You would have loved it no doubt. It was a kind of madness mixing pros and amateurs, Elite and GTL now, and different cars till '76 at least. I never found a pic from our Bertone probably because the official photographers didn't believe we could finish or being qualified!

Cibiés look great of course. Are the main headlights original ones?

They’re modern single bulb reflectors. Even if I had Cibie Biodes I wouldn’t use them on a race car- far too valuable!

Sure they are worth a fortune now! Back in the day some cars had Biodes as standard fitment I remember some 504 series had ones, low and main beam from one single bulb plus another bulb in a separate reflector. High efficiency.

Gerard,

Its this one chassis number 3. Originally the French March importers car, quite a famous car in France I believe, last French owner Flavien Marcais arrived in UK in 2004, I'm the 6th owner from new! Richard Piper ran it in CER in 2016, I did HSCC pre-80's last year, CER this year and hopefully CER and Classic Le Mans next year.

Best regards

Kevin

Kevin, thanks for info and pic! What a jewell with a great history I recall it was raced at Magny-Cours, Vdev series. One of my favorite, no doubt, together with the TOJ. Entered moons ago in our national championship we had a Cheetah, pedaled by a really nice person, Daniel Brillat. I seem to recall he used to run a Honda cars shop near Geneva and raced a 2002 Bimmer at Le Mans. I like the GRD's too and we still have a Cesca-Grac racing those days. But your March looks like no other for sure. I know you'll have fun there, take care when enjoying.

Gerard,

Yes its certainly an upgrade from my Royale RP17 and is wonderful to drive.

After Spa I'll be at Dijon in June, which is a circuit I love, be great to meet you if you are there.

Best regards

Kevin

RP17, Kevin? Assuming its a HFF agree upon the fact that its quite a change! We have few Royale's here, Van Diemens are numerous. One of my old bloke drives a Jomo JMR7 which looks like… well, a Jomo!

'f course, I'd love to meet you at Dijon, anywhere else would be great too, and have a "visite guidée" of your wonder! Always found the shape of the cockpit fascinating. Probably not really easy to spot the apex though…

Gerard,

No the RP17 was a 1973 sports racer, only 1 ran in period so we upgraded an RP6 chassis and obtained an HTP with a Cosworth BDG, actually came third overall in Dijon a few years ago in a 1 hour race in the wet on slicks!!

More service too! If you suspect your engine builder to arrange your power sheets, you can have your car tested on a rolling road, € 500 for 40'. Video service too.
